Track Name: Brick By Brick
Brick by brick you built these walls
And now I'm here to take them down
C’mon let’s get down to it cuz I don’t have time for this shit now

So roll your sleeves up & hold on
It’s gonna be a ride now that’s for sure
Jump on board or just get lost cause this here train is taking off

Your whole life is gonna change, When you take one step off that page
Things will never be the same Your whole life is gonna change

We plant seeds & watch them grow
For better or for worse y’know
And in this moment you let go, both feet in without a tow...

Your whole life is gonna change, When you take one step off that ledge
Starting now starting today, Your whole life is gonna change

Step one is to look at what you have
Step to is to ignore all the rest
Step three is never looking back and giving everything you have

Your whole life is gonna change,
Are you listening to what I’m sayin’
Things will never be the same
Your whole life is gonna change
Starting here starting today
Your whole life is gonna change
Track Name: Never Meant To Last
I know this is only living in my mind
But something that you sold me has made it’s way inside
And I know I know better than to bargain with the past
But we had something special it just was never meant to last

Promises of glitter all washed up a lie
You threw me in the river for the next one up to ride
I guess you knew better to cut me free of that
But we had something special that was never meant to last

Long way to crawl down that empty fault

I’ll see you in circles pretending I’m alright
That I don’t hit the bottle more than I would like
We both, we knew better than to hold each other back
It just was something special that was never meant to last

And baby just remember when you’re looking back
That you had something special that was never yours to have
Track Name: Little Yellow House
Little yellow house on Bennett Street
The smell of lilac in the backyard stream
Chinese checkers and melted ice cream
The basement secrets that I still keep

All along you were a home to me
I said goodbye, but somehow it won’t leave me

Packing up the treasures of our love in a box
Haunted by the feeling of
Holding onto to the ghost of Sarah
Wasn’t it just yesterday?
Wake up one day and realize that everything has changed

The chair you sat in, the ribboned linens,
The time of your living has left the room
This old house will be no more
We’ll lock the memories behind this door

All along you were a home to me
And forever more you'll always be

Packing up the treasures of our love in a box
Haunted by the feeling of
Holding onto to the ghost of Sarah
Wasn’t it just yesterday?
Wake up one day and realize that everything has changed

Little yellow house on Bennett Street
I miss you, do you miss me?
Track Name: This Is Your Home
Tired of running away from the truth
Tired of trying to cover up you
You can try to deny, but without fail
It’s gonna find you and make you give in

*Cuz this is your heart, this is your home
It’s where you belong, it’s all that you are
A treacherous journey, but you knew all along
This is your heart, this is your home

Fighting the fires; voices in your head
Telling you things better left unsaid
You turn your back on her, but you’ll never get far
Cuz always inside you you’re still wanting more

There’s no escape route, there’s hardly a map
To find your way out or find your way back
The more you resist the more you’re attached
But I don’t think there’s anything wrong now with that

Try to deny it, but without fail
It’s gonna find me again and again
